Law Plain and Simple
They've got site they like with a CMS that gives them nightmares. They want all their amazing content in a place they can manage with confidence. They know Law and they know WordPress. No one wants to rebrand or redesign but they do want a custom WordPress theme with some new features to boot.
There were no critical problems with the old website, it just wasn't what the client needed. We can help bridge the gap. The response was simple, give this successful website the Code and Create treatment. Build bespoke, build with best practice, to the clients specification with an ever-present eye on performance. Development like this means the client won't need excessive plugins to get their message across. WordPress core security updates will be easy. And should the client need a plugin later down the line everything will be compatible.
The Technical Bit
We might be a little different in the way we do WordPress here at Code and Create. When we build WordPress we build bespoke. That's a custom theme, tailored to your website. Performance as a feature and plugins to a minimum. We set to scavenge parts of the old site to save as much time and cost as possible.
The old "CMS" was set in stone, no data export mechanism to speak of. To migrate the content from the old system we had to build a python script that ripped the content out from the old website and saved it neatly into a spreadsheet to import into WordPress at a later date. No problem.
